My New Best Friends..NOT!




Well, actually I 86ed the crutches because they were killing me in every way imaginable!
I was going down the stairs from upstairs with socks on and my foot slipped off the edge of the step and pounded down to the one below. I heard a pop but no pain. This was on a Friday. When the girls got here on Monday they said my ankle was blue and swollen and I needed to be seen. Funny thing, it only hurt when I was not walking on it! They forced me to go to ER on Tuesday and the xray showed no break but tendon stretching so thus the air cast and crutches. I nearly fell leaving the ER on crutches and when I got home I nearly broke my body in half getting up to the house. By the next day I was sore and decided life was going to go on without crutches and only getting up for bathroom trips. I got to take the air cast off yesterday and I can tell no difference. I see my PCP tomorrow so we will see what he says.
So Jo-Jo, you didn't miss it...in the hurry and scurry of Thanksgiving I forgot to post about it.
Got my Christmas cards out today, at least the first batch. I believe Debbie's and Jo-Jo's went out in that batch. Anyone else who wants to be added to my Christmas card list please email me at dachsielvr@aol.com
Believe~~~ALWAYS BELIEVE!!!

Whoa, hope the tendon shrinks back to where it's supposed to be! Be careful! As we say in my family, don't break a hip!!! Thinking of you and yours.
